                            Stunning in every aspect

                            5 of 5
                            We spent an amazing few days here. The location is simply sublime and the accommodation exceeded expectations. The house has been sympathetically restored and offers every mod con that you need on holiday whilst never feeling just like another holiday rental. Kitchen / diner is perfect for families and opens up onto a wonderful terrace overlooking Mont Ventoux. It gets the sun in the morning so outdoor breakfast is a must. The living area is big enough for 6-8 people whilst never feeling cramped and even has British channels for those of you who like a home from home. The three bedrooms are biggger than most people's living rooms with wonderful ensuites that means everyone has their privacy. Outdoors just carries on the relaxing homely feel. There is a large table for al fresco dining next to the superb heated pool with views to die for. There is a play area for children with swing, slide climbing frame plus a quiet courtyard that's just perfect for an early evening BBQ. All this set amongst lavender fields and vineyards that carry on for miles. A special mention to hosts Sarah and David. They were very accommodating during our stay and nothing was too much trouble for them however they also recognised the importance of making their guests feel that they were alone on their holidays and we never even noticed that they were in the property next door. Having rented many properties with similar setups it was lovely to find hosts that appreciated a families need for independence and peace, whilst also being available if there were any issues (which there weren't!). One of the best holidays we've ever had and we'll definitely return next year!

                            Well equipped gite in lovely, peaceful surroundings

                            5 of 5
                            The property is well kept and situated in a quiet rural setting. The swimming pool was a welcome addition to recover from the hot summer days. The well stock wood library meant that barbecues were the order of the day and made for the perfect end to long days exploring the local area. Be sure to visit as many of the nearby chateaux as you can. The beds are comfortable and if you hire linen it is crisp and fresh. We had a thoroughly good time and recommend the property wholeheartedly.
